Hello, World!

Who I am

I am a third-year Software Engineering Student at Rochester Institute of Technology interested in full stack development, mobile applications, and web engineering.  As a freshman, I was enrolled in the Computing Exploration Program where I was exposed to the several departments within RIT's College of Computing.  This exposure enabled me to decided that Software Engineering was the best fit for me.  I became very involved in the Society of Software Engineers (SSE), a student organization that hosts mentoring, develops student led projects, and creates a network of students, alumni, and employers.  I was elected Secretary of the SSE for the 2017-18 academic year.

I grew up on Long Island, New York where I was an active member in my Boy Scouts troop and am proud to have earned the rank of Eagle Scout.  Throughout high school, I was the Lighting Master for my school.  I designed, rigged, and operated the lighting for all of the theatrical performances.  In addition to academics at RIT, I continued my passion for theatre and have been involved in the lighting for multiple performances on campus.  I am also a member of the percussion section in RIT's Pep Band where we help create an atmosphere of school spirit at the weekly home hockey games and other events around campus.  I always enjoy riding my skateboard even if it is sometimes only from my room to class.
